. now i want to bring in cnn's becky anderson also there in london. so, becky, how is romney's visit going over with ordinary brits? have they even noticed he's there? >> i've just conducted my -- it's going to be said fairly unscientific straw poll on the streets of london here right outside the houses of parliament asking people whether they knew mitt romney was or whether they cared about what he says. and it's got to be said nobody knew who he was. that doesn't mean that not everybody in britain is interested in his comments but he's not really making headlines in the newspapers. for example the only paper mitt romney was quoted in or certainly his aides off the record were quoted in was the "daily telegraph" here and he made page 16. not even a full page. it's a very, very small part of the newspaper here. the writer swon sway picking up on these comments from an aide of romney that he would restore anglo saxon understanding to the uk and the u.s.'s relationship in picking up on the fact that some people might read that as racist when given that the aide was reported as also say

>>> hello again everyone. you're in the cnn newsroom. i'm fredricka whitfield. a significant new development in the mass shooting at a colorado theater. the suspect james holmes was seeing a doctor who specializes in schizophrenia. drew griffin is with cnn's special investigations unit. >> according to his attorney in colorado the 24-year-old accused of killing 12 and gunning down dozens of others was seeing a psychiatrist at the time of the shooting. it's a huge development that stems from that package that was mailed to a professor at the university of colorado's aurora campus on monday. according to a motion filed in colorado, just yesterday, that professor was actually james holmes' psychiatrist, dr. lynn fenton the head of student medical health services at the university of colorado's aurora campus and according to holmes' attorney mr. holmes was a psychiatric patient of dr. fenton and his communications with her are protected. that attorney is now trying to get ahold of that package and the contents of which according to cbs news supposedly describe how holmes would kill p
more ahead on cnn "sunday morning" which starts right now. >>> if you're just waking up this morning, let's catch you up on what's happening here in aurora, colorado. overnight, we found out that police interviewed an associate of suspected gunman james holmes. a spokeswoman says the person is not a suspect, and there's no reason to believe that he was involved. also, police now say that they've removed all the booby traps from james holmes' apartment and performed a controlled detonation of some of the explosives. others were burned. many residents who were evacuated were allowed to return home. >>> police say the evidence shows holmes may have been planning the attack for months. and he wanted to kill or hurt anyone looking for information about him in the aftermath of the attack. we now know the names of all 12 people killed in the tragic shooting. many were under 30 years old. the youngest victim just 6. police say the theater where the shooting took place will remain closed until at least wednesday. that gives them time to complete their investigation. holmes' defense team will
-pedic -- the most highly recommended bed in america. >>> good morning, everyone. welcome back to "cnn saturday morning." scientology is a controversial and misunderstood religion. the church is famously secretive about their practices and inner workings, which just leads to more questions. we're focusing on scientology this morning, the myths, the money and, of course, the celebrities. it seems what many people know about the church is what they hear from celebrities. actors and actresses count themselves as members. people like tom cruise. cnn has more on cruise's connection to scientology. >> reporter: when it comes to scientology, tom cruise may be the most famous defender. tearing into matt lauer over psychiatrist. >> do you know at roll, ritalin, do you know now ritalin is a street drug. >> the difference is -- >> matt, i'm asking you a question. >> i understand there's abuse of all of these things. >> no, you see, here is the problem. you don't know the history of psychiatry, i do. >> reporter: although cruise joined scientology in the 1980s over the past decade his public identification
that may have gone into this attack by this suspect. cnn has obtained a receipt of tactical gear that james holmes bought online back on july 2nd. the tactical gear which matches the description of some of the witnesses who described what he was wearing. urban assault dress. triple pistol magazine. m-16 magazine pouch. and a knife, a large knife. all of them colored in black. we do have that receipt. we're trying to get that accessible. it was shipped to his home that the police are now at right now. shows that he's been -- >> full protective gear. as we heard the witnesses say, they couldn't even make out what he looked like. all they could see was how tall he was and his stature. they didn't know what race he was, nothing. he covered key parts of his body. groin area, also his neck area as well. >> right. there's no gas mask on, no headgear on this itemized list, it was for $306. but the fact that it was all ordered and colored in black seems to indicate he was putting together some kind of outfit that would match other things that he might have on his body. >> you're working on more info

of a legal battle. cnn's jim spellman is following the development from arapahoe county, colorado. tell us more on this. >> reporter: yeah. hello. last monday this notebook from james holmes arrived at the university of colorado there in the mail room. addressed to this psychiatrist he was seeing there at the school. so we know that the police came and they took that. now there's this gag order in effect. so law enforcement are not supposed to be talking to the media. but there was apparently what other media outlets called leaks that reported these were writings from holmes saying he was going to hurt people with drawings of people with guns and violent imagery, things like that. so the defense from holmes says, look, there's been the leaks. this is privileged material between a patient and a doctor. we want this material. the da's office says these leaks are inaccurate. they're not right. they don't have accurate sourcing. we don't want to give it to you. the judge said we're going to have a hearing about this monday. we'll decide. what it does tell us though is that, one, he was seeking
is cnn contributor. good to see you reuben. does michael bloomberg have a point there or would it be too knee jerk for either the president or candidate to start talking about gun issues right now? >> good to be back with you. i think too quick, too soon. i think what americans want is pretty much what president bill clinton accomplished after the oklahoma city bombing, a sense of empathy to help with the healing but never get in front of a story. never be seen as trying to shove these events into a preset agenda. clinton did not do that after oklahoma city. it would be a mistake to do that here. >> does this tragedy set the stage for either of these candidates to at some point address their platform as it pertains to guns specifically as we are just about three months away from people going to the polls? >> i would agree that when the time comes that conversation needs to happen. what needs to happen is the discussion that one individual can accumulate an arsenal of weapons without drawing the attention of authorities. whether you are concerned about domestic security or terrorism threa
in the fbi's words significantly reduced. poppy harlow, cnn, aurora, colorado. >> all right, poppy. we are learning about amazing stories of survival. corbin was in the theater when the gunman opened fire and saw the whole thing happen along with his friend jennifer i spoke to last night. jennifer said last night she was doing okay. how are you holding up? >> a lot better today than when it happened. i am glad to talk to people who have gone through the same thing. >> we heard over and over about their experience in the theater. i have to ask you as someone who was in there, i didn't ask anybody last night in and yesterday, what is it like being here with the building so close? >> when i look at the building, i get a really blank feeling inside. it's hard to look at it. i try not to think of the event that took place. i am still seeing flash backs of what i first saw. >> you don't even want to look over at it. >> i will look over, but it will give me an uncomfortable feeling. >> jennifer said that the gunman got really close to her and pointed the gun at her and didn't shoot her, but s
dan lothian and dana bash, they are both standing by live. but first cnn's poppy harlow breaks down the numbers. >> hi there, wolf. i think the headline for this jobs report is disappointing. only 80,000 jobs created in the month of june. unemployment stays at 8.2%. we need to be creating somewhere between 300,000 and 400,000 jobs a month pretty consistently to bring that rate down. issues here 12.7 million americans still unemployed in this country. 5.4 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer. the longer you're out of work, the longer it takes you to find a job. that is a problem. also very key here. 2.5 million people are not counted in this unemployment rate at all. they can work, but they have stopped looking for work. so they're not counted in the unemployment rate. so it's actually higher than 8.2%. also very key here is minorities. we have to look at what has happened to african-americans. their unemployment rate has gone up for the month of may. it's now nearly 14.5%. it is pretty much double unemployment for whites, hispanics, 11% unemployment. that's
